“It is one of the single most consolidated sources of leadership that I know of,” said 2014 attendee Charity Johnson, Wayne County Chamber. “But it goes beyond that. I think this conference, although very focused on leadership, transcends the topic and really shows you how to lead and live life. It is great that we can attend a leadership training like this, featuring outstanding speakers, in Wayne County.” Mount Olive Chamber President, Julie Beck, stated, “We are pleased to host Leadercast for the fourth straight year. This year, like previous years, features an impressive array of speakers that we are able to bring to organizations and individuals right here in our home community.”


Leadercast exists to positively change the way the world thinks about leadership. This year’s theme—The Brave Ones — challenges leaders to lead with a sense of Bravery, possessing a posture of unrelenting boldness. Bring your friends or team members to experience Leadercast and discover what it means to be a leader worth following.
